    2012 Tacoma Prerunner
    Hello all Tacoma owners! This is my first post. I recently purchased a 2012 Tacoma 2wd Prerunner, 4 cylinder. I LOVE my truck!! But just like most other truck owners, there's always room for upgrades. I currently have the base model steel wheels, but I really don't like them. I am in the process of purchasing some alloy wheels from a 2008 Tacoma. The wheels are part number 69461. I'd like to know what style lug nuts I need in order to install my new wheels. In the pictures of the wheels that I'm purchasing, it looks like the "seat" for the lug nuts are flat. As if maybe there is a flat washer it's suppose to be behind the lug nuts. The new wheels do not come with lug nuts, and I'm not sure if my current lug nuts are the correct ones since they are just tapered and have no flat washer. I'm hoping that someone that has the 69461 alloy wheels could shed some light on the subject with maybe some pictures an/or part numbers for lug nuts. I am posting pictures of the alloy wheels that I've considered purchasing and my current basic steel wheels on my truck. Any input or additional information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    One more thing. My current tires are 245/75 R16 on the steel wheels. The tires that come with the new wheels are 265/70 R16 on the alloy wheels. Is this going to give me any wheel well or turning clearance issues?

    Steel wheels use a different style lug nut.
    You want “shank” or “mag” style lug nuts. Toyota uses a washer attached style.
    Those wheels look like the ones on my truck.

    My truck is a 2007 TRD Off-Road

    You won’t have any problems with the tire size rubbing. And you need different lug nuts.

    Suggestion, be sure to get the longer lug nut version - for Tacoma, RAV4, trucks, etc - Thread: 12x1.5mm; Hex: 13/16"; Overall Length: 1.87"
    Appears the shorter lug nut overall length: 1.47" is for Toyota & Lexus cars.

    Either length will work. They have the same thread engagement. It's a cosmetic thing only. Some wheels have a deeper lug well, some are more shallow. If you want the lug nuts to look almost flush go with the longer ones, if you're sticking with the OEM Off Road wheels. But if in doubt...get the shorter ones

    And notice they are tapered at the bottom. This is to accommodate your steel spare wheel.

    Yeah, pretty sure they make them in a black chrome and black.

    My stock are Chrome, I had that link saved.
    But I think I saw them in the other colors as well.

    If you buy any black ones from Amazon get some Rustoleum and paint them several coats before using or they will rust in 6-12 months - guaranteed. Been there done that.
    Went the solid lug route in black as stock ones have the stamped chrome skin that the tire shops mangled over the years as they never use 21mm 6 point - seems all their impact sockets are well rounded and they use the standard SAE sizes.
